“He looks like a transformer” – Twitter reacts as Shubman Gill hogs the limelight with a new grill helmet

India’s young cricketer Shubman Gill has been making waves in white-ball cricket ever since he donned the Indian outfit. Recently, he became the youngest cricketer to score a double century in One-Day Internationals.

Besides that, he also became the youngest cricketer to score a century in Tests, ODIs and T20Is. The right-handed batsman has already shown promising signs at such a young age.

If he is backed properly by the team management, then he is certainly destined for greatness. The young star is currently part of the ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy series against the Australian cricket team.


He didn’t get a chance to express himself in the first two Tests and was warming the bench. However, he was brought into the mix for the third Test match in Indore where he scored 21 and 5 in the first and second innings.
